Instructor: Felix Harcourt
Description: In conjunction with the Council of Independent Colleges/Gilder Lehrman Center program “Legacies of American Slavery,” students will learn about the history of civil rights, racial violence, and resistance in our region while engaging in their own original archival work and critical consideration of how best to inform a wide public audience of these histories. From the pioneering work of civil rights lawyer William Durham to the 1930 lynching of George Hughes, students will have the opportunity to dig deeply into our local history while building critical research, design, and communication skills. As part of the course, the class will travel to a variety of important local sites, including Fort Worth, Paris, and an overnight stay in Tulsa.
